Itinerary
Day 1-2

New York, United States of America.

On arrival in New York, you will be transferred to the hotel for your one night stay in the Big Apple. In the morning you will be transferred to the port to board your cruise ship, the 5* Sky Princess. A leading global city, New York exerts a powerful influence over worldwide commerce, finance, culture and fashion, and entertainment. The city consists of five boroughs and an intricate patchwork of neighborhoods. Some of these include Lower Manhattan and the New York Stock Exchange, Battery Park and South Street Seaport, Chinatown, trendy SoHo and Greenwich Village, along with Little Italy, the flat Iron District and Gramercy Park. Famous Central Park covers 843 acres of paths, ponds, lakes and green space within the asphalt jungle. Many districts and landmarks have become well-known to outsiders. Nearly 170 languages are spoken in the city and over 35% of its population was born outside the United States.

Day 3

Newport, Rhode Island

Fascinating as Newport’s early history is, the real intrigue began in the late 1850s when wealthy industrialists began building opulent summer residences along cliff-top Bellevue Ave. Impeccably styled on Italianate palazzi, French châteaux and Elizabethan manor houses, these gloriously restored mansions filled with priceless antiques and their breathtaking location must be seen to be believed. The curiosity, variety, extravagance and uniqueness of this spectacle is unrivalled.

Honouring its maritime roots, Newport remains a global centre for yachting. Put simply, summers here sparkle: locals have excellent taste and know how to throw a shindig. There’s always something going on, including a series of cross-genre festivals that are among the best in the USA.

Day 4

Boston, Massachusetts

For all intents and purposes, Boston is the oldest city in America. And you can hardly walk a step over its cobblestone streets without running into some historic site. The Freedom Trail winds its way around the city centre, connecting 16 historically significant sites, from the country’s oldest public park to a Revolutionary War battle site. These are the very places where history unfolded, especially the events leading to the American fight for independence from Britain. Other sites remember the city’s role in the abolition movement, its cultural contributions and more. In effect, Boston is one fantastic outdoor history museum.

Day 5

Bar Harbor, Maine

Although Bar Harbor’s hustle and bustle is not for everybody, it has by far the most amenities of any town around here. Even if you stay elsewhere, you’ll probably wind up here to eat dinner, grab a drink or schedule a kayaking, sailing or rock-climbing tour.

Bar Harbor’s busiest season is late June through August. There’s a short lull just after Labor Day (early September); it gets busy again during foliage season, which lasts through mid-October. The season ends the weekend following Columbus Day with the Mount Desert Island Marathon

Day 6

Saint John, New Brunswick (for the Bay of Fundy), Canada

Saint John, Canada’s oldest settlement is the gateway to the scenic wonders of New Brunswick. One of Canada’s oldest provinces, New Brunswick remains remarkably unspoiled: 85 percent of the province remains unsettled. New Brunswick boasts vast forests, purling streams, gentle hills, rich farmlands, and a spectacular coastline dotted by historic towns. Nature also blessed the area with one of her most astonishing phenomena: the reversing River Rapids. The fierce tides of the Bay of Fundy rise with such force that they actually cause the St. John River to reverse direction and its waters to flow upstream. Saint John’s history dates to 1604, when the Sieur de Champlain landed nearby on the feast day of Saint John the Baptist. After the American Revolution, American Loyalists flocked to the area. Saint John became a thriving industrial port. But the catastrophic fire of 1877, declining commerce and decades of neglect gave the town a sad and careworn look for decades. That changed in recent years. Redevelopment of the waterfront and the old district has restored Saint John’s charm and its sense of history.

Day 7

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada’s Atlantic Provinces, Halifax was once Great Britain’s major military bastion in North America. The beautifully restored waterfront buildings of Halifax’s Historic Properties recall the city’s centuries-old maritime heritage. Stroll the waterfront, and you may find Nova Scotia’s floating ambassador, the schooner Bluenose II, tied up to Privateer’s Wharf, just as old sailing ships have done for over 200 years. Halifax is also the gateway to Nova Scotia’s stunning scenery, including famous Peggy’s Cove, where surf-pounded granite cliffs and a solitary lighthouse create an unsurpassed scene of rugged natural beauty.

Day 8

At Sea

Day 9

New York, United States of America.

Following your departure from the Sky Princess, you will be transferred to the airport to catch your flight home to Dublin. Alternatively, you can extend your stay in New York – call for details 01 294 1000.
